Bcg has a small aero team, mostly focused on industry 4.0. Their airline practice is more developed. They do some a&d m&a work, but my impression was that it was mostly staffed/run by a broad industrials partner rather than an aero or defense expert. Tbh I've never been impressed by bcg's a&d team. Mckinsey is much stronger in these domains. Source:a&d consultant that has worked on 70+ m&a engagements, often with other consulting firms

A1 is spot on, I've been on the client side where we had BCG in and at a competitor where we came in after BCG a few times to reattack. Relatively smart people, but very limited subject-matter knowledge and understanding.

I have minor generalized anxiety. Lately, I’ve had worse anxiety than normal, and as a result, I’m taking my second mental health day in a row. I didn’t tell my firm that it was a mental health day, I just told them I was sick with non-COVID symptoms. None of the partners I work for objected or said anything negative, but I’m now getting worried that they’re somehow going to find out it was just a mental health day instead of physical illness, and that it will somehow bite me in the ass . . .
